Montressor starts to tell Fortunato to go back because his cold is getting worse. As they walk deeper into the catacombs they finally reach the deepest part.
  • Resolution

  • Fortunato starts jangling his chains and screaming. Montressor screams back. Before Montressor puts the last block in he gets a last look at Fortunato. Then Fortuato dies by suffocation and his bells start jingling.
  • Montressor told his son what he did 50 years ago. No one has found Fortunato. Montresssor had done the horrible thing half a century ago. The internal conflict is Montressor's need for revenge on Fortunato. The theme is the need for revenge is a very strong motivator.
